The Etna Brick

Will surprised me by gifting me an Etna Brick in The Barony.

This only started on Tuesday. Yet it's already a series (three consecutive blips).

I had to celebrate with another round. Although I think Will may have been mildly surprised when I started to outline the importance of the Etna Brick in the Scottish Brick landscape.

The Etna Works at Bathville near Armadale began operation in the 1860′s and, among other fireclay products, produced a common building brick. The works were modernised in the 1950′s, and new kilns built in the 1960′s. Production of red common bricks continued into the 1990′s.
